R.I.P. Mary O... again...

(Yes, I'm probably going to be posting about my favorite manual guide a lot more than usual for a while, what with Super Mario Maker 2 coming out this month and Mary O.'s fate still unclear and still not looking good.
I apologize in advance because that means these posts are probably going to get even more annoying than usual.
But I recently discovered that I seem to be the biggest Mary O. fanboy in the world if stuff from my own journal shows up so often in Google searches for her, so hey, I may as well embrace it!)

Well, with SMM2 coming out this month and Mary O.'s fate-- oh wait, I said that already in the disclaimer.

To make a long story short:

Notice how I FINALLY have a userpic with Mary O. in it? (I mean, I did have Enya dressed as Mary O. as a userpic, but I FINALLY have one with Mary O. herself!) :D

I also made these ones, but I won't upload them as userpics until I know they're legible enough. So, I ask you: Are these ones legible?

EDIT: Per a comment on DW, I already attempted to improve the legibility of the 1st, 2nd, and 5th ones. So, are THESE legible?

EDIT: Per another comment on DW, here's some more attempts at making the first two more legible. So, in addition to the above, which of these versions of the first two are legible enough? If any? (these are all in one image to save time, so click to enlarge)

I've been wanting to make userpics with Mary O. in them for YEARS now, but until now I never got around to it. Mainly because I had the dumb idea of saving all of my userpic ideas - Mary O. or otherwise - for the next time I got around to making another poll asking which ones you wanted me to make. Which no one likely would have voted on because it would've been too long to read.

And the fact that Mary O. is seemingly being replaced in Super Mario Maker 2 is making me sad about it... and the fact that Nintendo has deleted EVERY trace of Mary O.'s memory from the official site (e.g. the online manual and Super Mario Maker Crash Course) is making me even MORE sad about it... thank goodness the Internet Wayback Machine saved SMM Crash Course and kind of saved the manual!

So I figured, if Nintendo is not going to keep Mary O. or Super Mario Maker Crash Course around forever, then I'll just have to immortalize the best Mary O. and Yamamura moments myself (the ones that'd make userpics I'm sure I'll have a use for, anyway).
