Over the course of the weekend, we have seen some great things in or around the tournament venue for Grand Prix Buenos Aires. It seemed only appropriate to archive these sights in a little overview. While this photo essay isn't going to quite the extent as the Pro Tours do, when Pro Tour photographer Craig Gibson is on site and at the ready, this will at least be able to provide a small glimpse into the fun and excitement of Agentina's largest Grand Prix if you were unable to attend.

A Grand Prix tends to bring out some phenomenal Magic cosplay work, and these two amazing cosplayers are no exception, making some remarkable portrayals of Chandra Nalaar and Liliana Vess.

Another thing that comes out of these events is some great fan shirt work. These two were sporting some Magic pride with custom-made shirts based off a classic phrase.

It looks like the beast has already been unleashed.

...or they're ready for a judge dog pile.

Yo dawg, I hear you like Detention Spheres...

Seriously, dawg, I hear you like Detention Spheres...

Peru's Magic team in attendance, excited to compete here this weekend.

Chile's Magic scene also came out in force, just one of many teams representing their country in one of South America's Grand Prix main events.

Step outside the tournament venue, and this is the kind of weather you're going to enjoy. While rain dampened things a bit on Friday, the weather and the park outside the venue has been gorgeous both yesterday and today.

Perhaps one of the biggest stories to come out of this weekend has been Hall of Famer Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa's success with Esper Control. Looking to see how he is doing? Just look for the crowd of spectators, and you'll find him...somewhere in there.
