woods ball pants and shirt

They have ok ventilation, but they're still considerably hotter to wear than traditional cotton/ripstop BDU pants.
That's going to be true of pretty much any nylon paintball pants.

So for pants, BDU pants are really durable and look sick in the woods and on the speedball field. They're not padded but you really don't need more than knee pads anyway. There's also a large selection of camo's to choose from. I personally like the Tiger Stripe and Multi-cam patterns. The one downside I've noticed is that they can get a little hot if you live in a warmer/more humid area. These should run you about $40-60.
For knee pads, you could find $6 wrestling knee pads at sports authority/Dick's/etc. and they'll last you about a full season if you play every weekend in them. Even when they do finally wear out, it's only $6 to replace them. Solid option for cheap knee padding.
Shirt, anything you like really. I'd recommend a plain solid colored shirt, or one with a funny printing on it (cookie monster face, pikachu, whatever you like). I'd also recommend getting it in 1-2 sizes larger than you normally wear. So if you're a large, get an XL-2XL. It'll be mroe breathable and you'll get more bounces (not a lot, but more than normal). As for color, if your mask is black/blue, a blue shirt would match it nicely. Works for any color. If you want a longsleeve, black goes good with everything. Stay away fro white because it doesn't work unless all your gear is white. Grey is fine. It's less "scrubbish" to have your longsleeve match your mask, it's all up to you though. The t-shirt could be anywhere from $7-40 depending on what you choose, and the longsleeve from $7-40 as well.
Elbow pads, although not a necessity, are very useful for getting bounces and crawling/diving. Unfortunately there are no shortcuts for these, and they'll go for about $35 upwards, and all of them are pretty much the same.
