Help me work with green high density foam

I am at the "what have I gotten myself into THIS year?" portion of the costume making season and am struggling with my material choice - 1 inch thick green high density foam.

This is the stuff you get at Joann (etc etc etc - this
stuff). It cuts beautifully, and I've been using hot glue to glue it together, but that makes for ugly seams. I could, I think, use a different glue for it, but there's no good way to clamp the pieces while the glue sets.
I don't think my sewing machine has enough spunk to sew it together, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try.
Any advice would be appreciated, whether that is a method of construction that I haven't thought of, or a method of finishing to make the seams a bit less ugly. Caulk?
