I enjoy every year seeing what is designed for our Winter Bash but this year I'm having issues identifying what the font is used for the text Winter Bash:

When I look for a solution with WhatTheFont the text seems to be causing an issue in the identifying process. When I try to take the screenshot I have made of Winter Bash and use matcherator to identify the font I run into the same issue.

Alternate letters were used on the t and h, then some freehand editing was done to complete the effect.


The year is Gotham with a thin outline added to give the rounded edges.
