Well, for the wigs. try checking out some of the mail-order cosplay shops on-line. You might also pick-up some good costuming tips there.

I seem to recall some internet sites with tips too. (I'm planning on going as Gendo at ACen '07, so I've done some Google searches.) I'm assuming you're planning on doing the plugsuits; doing Asuka and Rei's school uniforms would be pretty simple.

Well one suggestion for the backpack. I would suggest using a hard foam to the get the shape down and then cover it in a white vinyl (gives it a nice synthetic look). That would be the lightest, most inexpensive method I can think of. The hard foam is dense enought to hold is shape, and easier enough to make the back pack design with.
