Fantabulous

adjective; blending
Fantabulous is along the same lines as fantastic and fabulous. It is another term for something that is great or awesome. Both blended words mean approximately the same thing, so it is not that far fetched to combine them together to make one succinct version. This is a common practice that can occur on accident (i.e. someone tries to say one word and half of another accidentally comes out like in grood (good + great)), or it could have been done on purpose because the speaker wanted to create the new word. It is a blend of fabulous and fantastic.
 
That concert was great, it was fantabulous!
Etymology : [comes from a combination of ‘fantastic’ (Middle English fantastic, fantastical, from Middle French & Late Latin; Middle French fantastique, from Late Latin phantasticus, from Greek phantastikos producing mental images, from phantazein to present to the mind) and ‘fabulous’ (Middle English, from Latin fabulosus, from fabula)]
