Fantasmigorical?

Fantasmigorical is a neologism, phonetically almost identical to phantasmagorical, which is the adjectival form of the noun, phantasmagoria, a word created in the late 18th century, first in French and quickly adapted in English. 

phantasmagoria, n.

Etymology
A borrowing from ancient Greek ϕάντασμα (phantasm) + a second element of uncertain origin ... after French fantasmagorie ... [It is possible that] the inventor of the word only wanted an unusual, interesting-sounding term, and created -agoria without conscious reference to other terms.

Definition (partial)
1. a. An exhibition of optical illusions produced chiefly by the use of a magic lantern, first exhibited in London in 1802 ....

 2. (A vision of) a rapidly transforming collection or series of imaginary (and usually fantastic) forms, such as may be experienced in a dream or fevered state, or evoked by literary description.
